Aside from perfect pies, food truck bites, and key lime or tropical fruit-flavored booze, beverages, and wines, the festival will be jam-packed with entertainment.

And really, what food festival is complete without a good friendly competition?

Of course, you can down some pie in the pie-eating contest, but you can also show off your hula-hooping skills and chug a lug in boozy beer drinking contests.

Live music will be playing throughout the duration of the festival, including steel drummers, America's Got Talent Finalist Ansley Burns, Team Blake contestant, Selkii, from season 16 of The Voice, American Idol contestant and Palm Bay local Mackenzie Carey, and many more musical guests will take the stage.

Additional entertainment you can expect to see include K-9 and bomb squad demonstrations, celeb autograph signings, wildlife shows, thoroughbred hermit crab races, a kids zone, street performers, artists, and more.

Tickets to this family-friendly event are actually super affordable too. Admission for adults is only $10, $5 for kids 12 and up, while little ones 4 and under get in free.
